Video: flying the Cirrus Jet

The Cirrus SF50 Vision Jet is one of the most interesting airplanes to hit the market in years, and it’s now fully certified. Ride along with Cirrus pilot Rob Haig in this video as he shows the single engine jet in action. You’ll see the pre-flight, takeoff, cruise and some maneuvers, plus get a feel for the Garmin avionics. While flying some big jets is mostly work, this personal jet looks like nothing but fun.

John knows how lucky he is to go to work every day at an airport. As Vice President of Sporty’s Pilot Shop’s Catalog Division, he says, “I get to hang around airplanes all the time, flying regularly and testing new products for the catalog.” Coming from an aviation family, John grew up in the back of small airplanes and learned to fly as a teenager. Ever since, he has been hooked on anything with wings and regularly flies a Citabria, a Pilatus PC-12 and a Robinson R44 helicopter. Despite his love of low and slow flight, John says, “I love the challenge of IFR flying in the system. Seeing the runway lights as you break out on approach is a thrill.”
